The germ/virus theory of disease, as far fetched as it may seem to a person who does not experience much sickness, is accepted by most of the population because it matches their personal experience of disease, and certainly medicines/herbs seem to make a difference to these people. But for some very sick people, the medicines and herbs quit working. This is not explained by the germ/virus theory

When the body has a cold or flu, this is just detox. This detox is something to be celebrated and to be grateful for, since this is the body getting rid of the the toxins and dead matter from within. It is a sign of health to be actively detoxing and internally cleansing. So when we take something that halts the cold or detox, what we do is keep the toxin stuff inside of us until we get enough

The thing about substances we take that remove symptoms, these only delay the true healing. The symptoms are in place to heal the body. Anything we do to suppress or palliate a symptom is preventing healing from happening. Just because we have the technology (either through pharmaceuticals or herbs) to make a symptom disappear doesn't mean we've 1) healed, or 2) removed the cause of the disease.

rad gal, I have a different approach to healing than powerlifer, one that worked for me. Before going raw, I had been working long hours in Silicon Valley, and consuming coffee to keep me going. When I finally quit coffee, I had massive chronic fatigue. What ultimately healed me was to quit all stimulants in my lifestyle and diet, including digestive stimulants like condiments such as salt,

This is a detox symptom. I recommend putting nothing on your skin except filtered water. You might want to also look at what toiletries and cleaning products you are using. For myself, for many years now, I have only been bathing with filtered water. I no longer use soap or shampoo (except in extreme circumstances, like if I get dirty motor oil in my hair or something). Also see about using a wat

With all the oil in the Gulf of Mexico, and the gulf stream carrying water from Florida to Europe, I have to wonder if any ocean-based food on the east coast is going to escape that pollution.

Asking if people are consuming cooked foods really doesn't serve the purpose of this of this forum, which is to support people in their raw food exploration.

Having topics about what cooked foods you are making is really not appropriate for this forum.

Even is it is raw, it is not going to be such a healthful option. If eating a raw tofu allows someone to move away from meat, then yes, I say go for it. But eating fresh fruits and salads is a healthier and more nutritious option.

I've heard of people making raw tofu out of sprouted soybeans. I have to wonder if the fermentation process or whatever is used to curdle the soybean paste gets rid of the toxins/anti-nutrients in soy.

Salt and fat are hard to kick, even when you are raw. In addition to salt, there are other spices in the hot dog, not to mention the mustard, ketchup, and relish used as condiments, or worse chili beans and melted cheese In any case, all this means is that your taste buds still love the added salt and sugar and spices in the hotdog, plus the fat. I would recommend taking time to feel how i

rab, I mostly don't eat it. But sometimes I eat some gourmet raw that might have it. It certainly makes me puffy right after eating it though.

I would listen to what your body is saying. If my consciousness were disturbed, I would do whatever it takes to prevent that in the future. Reducing or eliminating the garlic or chilies will likely reduce the disturbance of consciousness. What I found in my process and experience was that initially I did fine with garlic and chillies and I enjoyed them. Over time, my body quit liking them, and

Somewhere in the Middle East is a place where there are forests of apple trees. I saw in this a documentary called the Botany of Desire. But since these trees have all grown from seed, the apples are not sweet, but are starchy and more suitable for making cider rather than eating raw. But still, wouldn't it be wonderful to find a forest of fig tree?

Whatever toxins exist in our environment or the environment where food grows, gets concentrated the higher up the food chain you go. So if plants pick up some cadmium or whatever heavy metal or toxin, the animal that eat those plants pick up the same toxins, and those toxins exist at a more concentrated level than in the original plants. So toxins contained in plants is not a reason to not eat

Dried fruit is OK for an occasional snack or a transitional food, but eaten all the time is not a great idea. Even if it is dehydrated at 110 degrees, which most fruit in the store is not, it still dehydrates your body, and sticks to your teeth, making your teeth more cavity (or carie) prone.

I think the fruitarian diet doesn't work for most people because of the nature of modern society, and it takes quite a mature and free individual who can break past the self limiting aspects of how people are socialized into being self destructive. Given the violent nature of our post industrial society, eating a diet of fruits only leaves the individual to feel the pain of our society in full

I suspect if you keep eating the cherries, at some point your body would adapt and they wouldn't have the same effect on you.
